Crazy 'Bout a Pigeon

My students have fallen hard for this pigeon.  He is the pigeon written about by Mo Willems.  I randomly brought in a book months ago to read on a Friday.  I knew how much my own children loved it, and although my students are much older than the target audience -- they are seriously obsessed with him.

Here's a link if you want to party with a pigeon:  http://www.pigeonpresents.com/
 I'm a huge fan of Mo Willems, and I've probably gushed about him before, but I just think he's a brilliant dude.  He's also written about the Knuffle Bunny, but our favorite around here is definitely the pigeon.

One of my favorite things to do is read to my classes and sometimes I think I should've been a librarian.  But, being an English teacher is probably more fun because I can speak above a whisper.

The Simpson clan loves us some Mo!! Sorry for the incorrect English but when I really love something I have to write it that way!

have your students or one of your kids' classes do some pigeon/knuffle bunny/gerald & piggie project and send it to him. maybe he'll answer them.
